Why do many people (including myself, obviously) consider fall to be the best season? The following little things might be why…
*disclaimer: this one probably only resonates with you if you live in New England (sorry).
As a woman raised in New England, few things get me more excited about life that watching the colors on the trees change to beautiful red, orange and yellow hues. This might be because I know this stunning foliage is always partnered with a pleasant crispness in the air: a much-needed change after a hot summer.
I understand that this photo my suggest my summer iced drink habit hasn’t died yet…
I guess it hasn’t. But, before you call me a hypocrite, please know that instead of an iced latte in that cup, it is an iced chai. In my defense, weather in the Washington D.C. area has been ridiculously warm for October, which has clearly put my fall hot drink habit a little off schedule.
(Please see the photo above for the coat you will see me in the other 50% of the time during this season)
Ahh finally…I can layer without sweating my butt off during the day! I long await the time when I can get dressed in the morning and toss my trusty jean jacket on before heading out the door to be greeted by the crispness of an autumnal morning.
…because I’m basic like that. While I think it sometimes border on crazy, the amount of pumpkin-flavored options we have during the fall is hard to ignore. Currently, my favorite autumn-flavored food item is pumpkin butter, which I slather on top of pancakes or on a turkey-avocado-cheese sandwich.
Soo, this may just be a me thing, but once fall comes, I constantly feel the urge to curl up with a good book in my read, light a candle and get to work. Something about the cooler weather has activities like this screaming my name.
